Upon arrival at IKEA, I was pleasantly surprised to see a poster I designed.

In a partnership with our friends at IKEA, you can get a free IKEA gift card.

Simply subscribe to the paper! The paper really does pay for itself.


Last week at IKEA, I happened upon this great kitchen floor.
At first glance, it appeared to be tile.
But upon inspection, it appeared to be a bamb0o-look laminate.
It was cut and installed with grout to look like tile. Nice.

yellow journa-LIZ-em

It was recently announced that Issac Mizrahi's line (newest designer for Liz Claiborne) will now only be available at QVC, meaning, I will never see his clothing in a store ever again. It was sad enough to see the empty hole he left at Target last year. So this week my obsession is to obtain the most iconic Liz pieces before he vanishes from Herberger's and Macy's (oops, I almost said Dayton's). I like how Isaac brought back this original Liz print from the 80s:

I am a sucker for anything cordouroy, and this jacket, even though it is yellow, has got me thinking "I need that now!"

Yellow can be a bad color on a lot of people, but if you put a brightly colored shirt between the yellow and your skintone, it can work. About a month ago, I saw these at the GAP.

The jacket is no longer available online, but the pants are.
I have big brown super high shoes. I'm pretty sure all of this will be on clearance by now, because no practical person would buy this color.

Silver and gold, silver and gold (but not for Xmas!)

I spotted these gold and silver pumpkins in my neighborhood. They are REAL pumpkins. Maybe she was inspired by the gold and silver lions up as THIRSTY's in Osseo:

Bad Bad Scottie Dog!

It's been 10 years since the kitchen remodel/addition. It's due for new paint, anyway.
